Please join us and be a part of Etobicoke’s only Hike for Hospice, in support of The Dorothy Ley Hospice. This has been a community supported event for 20 years. Together, we celebrate life and remember our loved ones. We are planning to be back in person this year with the option to join virtually for those who are unable to make it to the live event.

Each year the Hospice must raise over $1 Million to ensure it can continue to serve our community free of charge!

THANK YOU TO THE BOARD OF DIRECTORS OF THE DOROTHY LEY HOSPICE.

Your passion and dedication during the crisis that was 2020/21, was integral to The Dorothy Ley Hospice forging ahead. We were able to continue to provide our residential and community services, without interruption, throughout the pandemic. 

In our residence, we maintained continuous flow to allow family visitation at a reduced levels and enabled special family moments where we could such as special birthdays, weddings and various other celebrations. 

In the community, we quickly adapted our programs to a virtual platform which enabled us to be more inclusive by allowing people from all over the world to participate in our Night of Remembrance ceremonies and various other programs. 

Our volunteers were empowered to work from home by providing wellness treatments and reaching out by telephone to provide support to palliative individuals and their families. 

We forged new partnerships, kept everyone safe and tended to the resiliency of our staff and volunteers.

Through the very darkest hours of COVID-19, you were there! You have tirelessly given your time and resources to our organization and continue to help us chart a path forward to fulfill and further our mission.

On behalf of the Staff, the Volunteers, and all the people that receive care from The Dorothy Ley Hospice, we would like to welcome this New Year by paying tribute to our dedicated members of the Board of Directors. We look forward to working with you in 2022!

Thank you again for all your efforts.

Hospice is not just a place, but an approach to care that focuses on living.

The Dorothy Ley Hospice was founded over 30 years ago to offer compassionate care to people living with a life limiting illness, their family and caregivers. Today, we offer Community hospice care in your home, Residential Care in our 10-bed residential hospice, and grief and bereavement services.

“Spiritual care lies at the heart of hospice. It says we are here. We will be with you in your living and your dying. We will free you from pain and give you the freedom to find your own meaning in your own life – your way. We will comfort you and those you love – not always with words, often with a touch or a glance. We will bring you hope – not for tomorrow but for this day.
We will not leave you. We will watch with you. We will be there.”

Dr Dorothy Ley
